A little bit about me!

After talking with some friends, I decided it was time to do a post about me. Most of the time I blog about my baby or my cats. Luckily, I got a baby to prevent me from becoming an old cat lady. Don't worry, that is not the only reason I got my baby.
I am Sandra (if you don't already know me) and I am 30 years old. I am a pretty happy go-lucky person with tons of energy (most of the time). I love to laugh and enjoy the simple things in life. Here are a few random things about me.

I wish my skin could look as flawless in real-life as it does in the following picture.

I wonder why I never look like the same person in any of my pictures.

I married Levi, the greatest man I know. He treats me like gold and takes great care of me. I enjoy quoting lines from movies/TV show and playing games with him. We are complete opposites, but we complete each other.

He makes me laugh the hardest...
...and can make me very mad at times. Hahaha

I am the mommy to the most beautiful and amazing little girl.

She is perfect in every way and brings so much joy to my life. I love singing with her and playing dress up.

I am so grateful for my faith and testimony. I am so grateful to know that through my faithfulness I can be with my family forever.

I love being crafty. I enjoy sewing clothes, quilts and gifts. I also enjoy scrapbooking and making crafts for my home and family/friends.

I made the dress I am wearing in the picture above and I made this quilt.

I love photography and editing picture. I love catching memories and moments on camera...

...turning a good picture into a great picture.
I love almost all animals. Luckily, my husband limits me otherwise I would probably be an animal hoarder.
I set several New Years Resolution this year. Levi said I set too many, but we all know I am an over achiever. I am posting some of them on here to hold me to them. If I am required to report to someone, you can bet that I will have them done and probably done early. So here we go:

1. Read a least 2 books (I have not read as much since becoming a mom).
2. Complete at least 3 quilts.
3. Learn at least 50 new words or phrases in Spanish.
4. Attend the temple regularly (I am shooting for monthly, but did not make it in January. I am not off to a good start).
5. Plan meals and actually cook them.
6. Use coupons and sell to purchase groceries in hopes to bring my grocery budget down.
7. Complete my month-end paperwork by its due date, if not earlier (work related).

I am more listed on my IPad, but we will just start with what is listed on here. Wish me luck.

10 Months

Our little monkey is growing up. She is 10 months old and weighs 19lbs. 1oz. She is full of spunk and attitude. She rules the house and has mastered the art of tantrums. She is very persistent if she really wants something. At least she never gives up.

We are still potty training. She is doing awesome. She is continuing to pee and hopefully soon she will poop in the potty. The goal is to have her potty trained by the time she is 18 months.

Zoe loves to play. She plays with toys, drawers, the cats and just about anything she can find. She is definitely a girly girl. She likes to play dress up especially when adding jewelry. She is obsessed with jewelry.

An a side note, we got a new cat. Here is a picture of her. We named her Zoe. See the similarities?

It is so weird to think Zoe is almost a year. Very soon I will be a mommy to a 1 year old. Boy, time does fly. I have loved watching her grow and develop. She is so smart. She says, "mommy," "mom," "mama," "daddy," "dada," "hi," and shakes her head for no. Her favorite saying right now is "1, 2, 3 GO." She makes sounds for 1, 2, 3, but her go is pretty clear.
